PHOENIX (September 10, 2019)—With a goal of reducing traffic congestion on I-10 near Wild Horse Pass, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), Gila River Indian Community, and Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) invite the public to attend a public scoping meeting. The meeting is part of an environmental study and design concept report. The segment under study is on Interstate 10 (I-10) between State Route Loop 202 (Santan Freeway) and State Route 387 (SR-387) near Casa Grande.

The purpose of the study is to assess the impacts of expanding the capacity of I-10 from the Loop 202/Santan Freeway interchange to just south of the interchange at SR-387 to reduce traffic congestion in the study area.

Public Scoping Meeting
Thursday, September 19, 2019, 6:00 PM–8:00 PM

Sacaton, AZ

Public scoping is the first step of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) environmental study process. The public scoping process provides the opportunity for the community to provide information to the study team about the corridor itself, as well as share issues or concerns the public may have about modifying I-10. The meeting will:

  • Provide an overview of the I-10 corridor, the study’s objectives, and the study’s schedule to the public.
  • Get community feedback on opportunities, issues, or concerns related to the study area.
  • Ask the public for input on potential corridor improvement alternatives.

This public feedback will help ADOT, the Gila River Indian Community, and MAG select a Preferred Alternative, either a Build Alternative or No-Build (“do nothing”) Alternative, for this section of I-10.

Comments provided by October 3, 2019, will be included in the study record. There are several ways to submit comments during the scoping process:
